FEDERALBERGHI, DOLOMITES SEASON TOP, SKI UNTIL MAY

A record-breaking season for spring 2017/2018 for the Veneto Dolomites, where the great snow of these last weeks will allow skiing on many slopes until May. “From Cortina to the whole of Cadore, up to Asiago with its cross-country trails, the Veneto mountain achieves a decidedly positive result,” explains Federalberghi. Well, even reservations for the next Easter, which, thanks to the favorable calendar, promises to be an extension of the winter ski season. This is what emerges from the check of Federalberghi regional in the receptive-hotel structures of the ski resorts of the Dolomites, which for 60% reside in Veneto, and where – in line with the national figure – the Italians who have so far spent the holidays are 11 % more than in January-March 2017. “The trend that the weekends in the snow and the white weeks – says the president of Federalberghi Veneto Marco Michielli – have recorded during the first quarter of 2018 is a comforting signal, which confirms the great potentiality of the Venetian mountain and leads us to look with confidence and optimism in the coming months “. “The Region’s commitment to raise funds, and that of companies to modernize the structures also in view of the World Ski Championships of 2021 – he adds – are returning the desired results. An excellent base for thinking about the Dolomites as an ideal and sustainable location for the upcoming Winter Olympics of 2026, with the hypothesis of Asiago as a natural venue for the specialty of the fund ». «Another novelty – he concludes – is the fact that bookings made directly by the hotels’ websites are growing, while those in the large portals decrease. A trend reversal that can only please us because it shows that tourists have understood that direct booking is convenient, in all respects ».
